Vin Diesel has posted an emotional tribute to fallen friend Paul Walker on the set of “Fast 8.”

It’s the first film in the “Fast & Furious” franchise that will not include Walker, who died two-and-a-half years ago during a break from filming “Furious 7.”

Diesel, 48, is currently shooting “Fast 8,” so he took to Instagram to share a touching account of an interaction he had with a crew member. 

“Many of the crew members who have worked on several of the past Fast films are here again to help us make something special,” Diesel wrote.

“One of them at the end of the week came up to me and said wow what we are capturing on film is excellent… And then looked at me and said Paul would be proud.”

Many fans appreciated the story, with a number chiming in to say they still miss Walker.
